are the financial, morgan stanley, of course bank of america, all down 6%, 7%, 8% on the week here. american express had their earnings out, that's not helping them today, look at that, down 8%. capital one also down noticeably and then you've got the earnings situation. other stocks. schlumberger had their earnings out, a few days, for schlumberger. the bottom line is they're charging lower prices for their oil services and of course their margins are under pressure. stocks are selling today on the earnings report. and then you have the tech situation, which is a very difficult time right now, because they all ran up ahead of earnings season but they're not doing that well. you've got citigroup coming out, downgreeding the whole semiconductor capital equipment group, so amat, teradyne, that group is all under pressure right now. let's go to rick santelli standing by in chicago. enough for you to digest there, rickster? >> reporter: i asked everyone around me what the word of the week was, and the word of the week was, unanimous, confusion. that an uncertainty, i guess that was the tie for second. s
in the people of america not just the government of america. >> sean: i agree. i think this arrogance and i think misinterpretation of the last elections' results. if you got to bribe senators to support your health care plan and buy off unions to support your health care plan and you are not going to keep your promise to be transparent and put it on c-span it seems this is a reaction to that arrogance do you agree with that analysis? >> i do. i think a lot of people will look at the campaign issue by issue to understand why scott brown has been so successful. it is really the attitude of are call them the neomonarchists in washington who believe big government is better, smarter, wiser than the people is happening in massachusetts the citizens here are saying no, we want a government that responds to the people of america and does not spoken to the ideologues and left wing of the democratic party. >> sean: what does it say about the president? you believe this is a referendum on barack obama's agenda. now, if this comes out, we have 63%, this just coming in, it is still 53-46. we don't ha
. what is our policy currently in latin america and how different is it from the bush administration? >> we really don't have a policy to latin america. that is not a fault of the obama administration. the euna states needs universal bilateral policies in certain regions. there are many long past policies for the night states -- the united states need to direct -- differentiate among different countries in the hemisphere. we have different priorities now. we are slow in washington on the hill and in the white house to come to that understanding. host: what is the political landscape in latin america? how has the landscape changed politically down there? guest: there is a much more diverse ideological group of countries such as venezuela and ecuador and bolivia which are not very friendly to the united states or to the market economy. on the other hand, we have a prpragmatic president likelula in central america. we have the problem of cuba and we have a terrible problem with haiti. host: on the issue of haiti, there is an article about a question of commitment and can the united stat

-business. as for the number one priority, health care reform, america is not too keen on that either. according to a new gallup survey, 55% want democrats to immediately suspend work on their health care reform bill and consider alternatives. the only good news i have for the president is the week is almost over. there's a lot of football this weekend. apparently he couldn't let the week pass without talking about his favorite subject, himself. look at today's white house orchestrated town hall event in ohio. >> what does it mean for obama? obama is just trying to perpetrate big government. obama is trying to cut medicare. there's some who think if obama loses, we win. >> sean: joining me reaction to all this karl rove the architect. i guess talking in the third person -- did you notice how angry he was today? >> yeah, absolutely. he did try and cut medicare. there was a reason people were saying that he laid out a plan to cut medicare by 456 billion dollars. of course people were saying obama is trying to cut medicare. i was amazed about that speech, he went on to say, look i've been trarpbs transparen
of america's pre-9/11 mentality, former clinton adviser, fox news contributor, dick morris is here, happy new year. >> thank you. sean the us is tell worked? >> oh god, no. we had all the evidence in the world in guy was a terrorist. when the guy's father who is a distinguished person in nigeria, tells you his son is gonna blow up a plane and is in yemen now and they already have him on a list of half a million people. the only reason he's not on the list of 4,000 people, the no-fly list they restricted the size of the list and cut it back because of privacy concerns. >> sean: the number one job of the president is to keep the country safe. it is not to vacation in hawaii. not to pass health care. here's my question: examine and analyze his handling from a to z in this case? >> everybody is missing the key point here. they are saying the cia, fbi should have shared information, he should have been put on list and obama called it a systemic failure. that's not what it is. it is the result of a political reeducation this administration has taken the intelligence community through that says, don
the democracy journal. now i would like to introduce philip longman of the new america's foundation. >> [inaudible] so i'm going to talk about the american veterans experience with agent orange, and before i do i just want to say right off that despite my appearance and actually a little too young to have been in the vietnam war. i missed it by a year, so i say that so nobody will confuse me with a draft doctor or a vietnam veteran who's got attitude. if i go into a rage i'm doing it on behalf of veterans, not because i am one. the other somewhat complicating factor for me today is as paul mentioned i am the author of this book, "best care anywhere why the v.a. health care is better than yours." and i have ownership of that book. it's coming out in a second edition. i still stand by what it says, which essentially is the va, despite its mixed reputation, has undergone a quality revolution that has a lot to teach about reforming the rest of the health care system. thank you. but the va does have problems, and when it comes to agent orange, many of those problems are very revealed, an
have a dream it's going to happen. and i know when the president told america eight different times on television that we're going to have all these negotiations on c-span. i know some day we're going to have all those negotiations on c-span. i have been trying to find out where the negotiations are going on so that we can have some true transparency and just -- and it was a great idea when the president said it. so that people all over the country can see who's negotiating for them and who's negotiating for the pharmaceuticals, who's negotiating for the insurance companies, who's negotiating for the plaintiffs' lawyers and aarp and standing on the side of the retired folks. we work able to see all of that. it would be transparent. the president, when i heard him saying that over and over again on television throughout the presidential campaign, i thought that's not a bad idea, that's a good idea. we'll make this totally transparent. even though i'm a republican, the president had a good idea. we have to give him fault, too. once he got elected, we need him to follow through and the
's something i like to see and obviously a lot of my colleagues do, too. and i think a lot of middle america does as well. the whole issue of david plouffe coming aboard, washington and the media are fascinated by the cultive personality. and if president obama had already passed the health care reform and had an approval rating of 90% plouffe would still be brought in to help with the mid-term elections. axelrod is saying okay fly boy. time to come off the book tour and roll up your sleeves and get back into the trenches. he is a good hand but he isn't going to fundamentally change what is going on. he isn't giving different advice than david axelrod or robert gibbs. those guys come from the same place. it's interesting that this washington game, while it doesn't do anything different practically speaking inside the white house for the press and ultimately the public it resets the frame. in other words the press will writ something large into this motion that david plouffe has come into the mix and things are going to change because he is there. but that will actually help the obama adminis

that they are trying to use the bully pull pit of america to force the other countries into forcing the airlines into having more enhanced screenings. the pilot authority, as you said, is going to be highly discretionary as to what goes on in the cabin. and of course, the obama administration must have known about all of these and they are trying to keep people calm. and then the response and what are you hearing, if anything, about the handling and the timing? >> look, these changes wouldn't have gone into ee fikt without the white house saying putting them in effect. this hases to do with security, no question about that they didn't react quick enough. at this point, i think we've seen the president come up, he's used very strong language. and mark and lynn, thank you very much. increasingly there is a concern for the united states and the west. >>> the u.s. government closed the embassy siting the possibility of terrorist violence. president obama is insistent for homeland security and counterterrorism. >> i spoke with the ambassador and both this morning as well as last night, there are indi
to promoting fiscal responsibility and addressing key economic challenges facing america's future. and additional funding is provided by the following supporters -- >>> good evening. i'm martin savidge. thank you for joining us. it's been one week since the earthquake struck in haiti and life changed in an instant for millions of people. beyond the estimated 200,000 killed, another 250,000 were injured and 1.5 million are homeless. as much of haiti lies in ruins, the relief effort has picked up by it is still described as sluggish. there were long lines today as u.n. peacekeepers handed out food and water. aid workers have distributed more than 250,000 daily food rations, half from the u.s. military, but still far short of what is needed. margaret aguirre of the international medical corps told us about the patients in a hospital where her team is working? >> reporter: we're getting food and water to them but there's still no electricity or running water around the city. it has been very difficult to get them clean, potable water. but we have a lot of help from our partners and u.

"this was a screw up that could have been disastrous. we dodged a bullet but just barely." the stern words of the u.s. commander in chief were caused by quote unquote systemic failure, his language, that prevented officials from gaining the data to stop a christmas day al qaeda terrorist plot. a 23-year-old nigerian citizen named oumar if a huk abdul -- umar farouk abdulmutallab. he carried deadly explosives concealed in his underwear. the plane crossed the atlantic and in the approach to the detroit runway, abdulmutallab tried to detonate the bob, it failed. he was then overpowered by passengers. catastrophe was averted powerful enough to hav
in america. the people of massachusetts spoke and spoke loudly. one concern i know a imin of you had about the outcome of this election would be whether the new senator would be seated. i'm convinced now that no gamesmanship will be played by the other side with regard to future votes in the senate. senator jim webb, made it clear he will not participate in any additional health care votes prior to senator brown being sworn in. and i noticed that elected officials in massachusetts who were principally responsible for certifying election after earlier saying take up to two weeks, indicated it could be as soon today. i don't believe the kind of thing we've seen on full diswith the corn husbander kick back, the louis purchase, the gator aide, drafting the bill behind closed doors, i think majority has got the message and no more gamesmanship here. no more lack of transparency. let's honor the wishes of the people of massachusetts and move forward with policy. with our policy debates. with that, let me call on our, outstanding chairman of the national republican senatorial committee who played

political base and it is too soon to see any results. * four people in america are still pretty hard, -- times for people in america are still pretty hard. then there is what president obama just found out from the peace -- from the people in massachusetts, in tough times the people doing -- blame the people in power. >> joining me in the studio is our abc news correspondent. why did the people turn against obama? >> that is -- a key question, is this a statement about martha copley and how she ran her campaign? or a larger statement about the obama administration? in the last year since he took office -- this is the anniversary -- we have seen those job approval rating numbers start to slip. now his job performance is still in theositive numbers. but it is not an overwhelmingly positive response by voters to the obama administration. people on the ground were not impressed with the martha copley campaign. she had some fumbles, she was not out there. but scott brown took a page out of the obama playbook. he was out there canvassing the state, he had a huge internet presence, and one

america's political debate. they're laws that have been upheld multiple times by the supreme court. like in 1990 when the supreme court ruled it was constitutional to restrict corporate political spending or 2003 when the supreme court ruled specifically that the mccain/feingold corporate campaign finance rules were okay. today in one of the most radical supreme court actions in years justice roberts and alito and their five member conservative majority overthrew at least a decade of settled law and congressional action and multiple supreme court precedence to wipe those laws away. corporations are free to inject unregulated billions, absolutely unlimited money into the political system now. if you are a regular person who has ever made a campaign donation before, forget about ever having to do that again. what's the point in individual people trying to influence politics with donations if exxon or some other company can quite literally match and therefore cancel out the combined donations of every single individual donor in the nation whenever it wants? in one check? and it can do it ev
